Yep, the United Nations General Assembly last week established the “United Nations Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela Prize” as a tribute to the achievements and contributions of the late South African leader who inspired not only his own country but the rest of the world.

“Our best tribute to Nelson Mandela is not found in words or ceremonies – but in actions that take up the torch he passed to us,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in remarks to the Assembly, following the adoption by consensus of the resolution establishing the prize.

Ban recalled that when Mandela himself accepted the Nobel Peace Prize, he said he was a representative of the countless human beings who quote, ‘recognised that an injury to one is an injury to all and therefore acted together in defence of justice and a common human decency.’
